Telia Finland announced it is taking its next steps with Teleste on the operator's journey toward offering premium video services over distributed and traditional cable access networks, and utilizing a Converged Interconnect Network (CIN) for video delivery and diverse services.
The newly deployed distributed access architecture from Teleste enables the use of separate video and broadband cores, offering improved flexibility and redundancy for operators having rigorous QoS standards.
QoS a constant challenge for broadband operators
The partners note that constant need to increase the productivity of service platforms and quality of services (QoS) is challenging cable MSOs worldwide.
In response to this challenge, Telia Finland has harnessed Teleste's Luminato 4X4 platform to fulfil its video delivery needs.
Luminato 4X4 works as a video core that manages video-specific parameters of distributed access remote PHY devices (RPDs) and Luminato 4X4 video engines.
The video engines feed nationwide and local video multiplexes serving local areas. IP to QAM conversion in local areas is performed by Teleste DAN300/DAN3 RPDs.
Luminato 4X4 is also used to broadcast services over traditional cable television network by using its video engine modules that support Edge QAM functionality as well.
Teleste Luminato 4X4 forms the basis for a new generation of modular headend platform for CATV, OTT and/or IPTV delivery. The company will be displaying the platform at IBC2022 (Sept. 9-12) in Amsterdam.
"It has been a pleasure to support Telia in their project that started with extensive tests and has now continued to the roll-out phase. Traditional broadcast television continues to be an important service even when distributed access solutions are becoming common, and we are happy to offer cutting edge technology for operators who connect families enjoying sporting events and other television services that continue to be good reasons to get together." -- Julius Tikkanen, VP, Video Service Platforms, Teleste"We have been delighted to see how our own organization and Teleste work together. Both companies have shown skill and stamina in this project. Our networks must be in perfect shape when broadband and video services have such a crucial role in today's modern society. We are happy to continue this project and deploy similar set-ups in new areas." -- Juha Tontti, head of network planning, Telia Finland
